You might also like a slightly earlier Polanski film-Repulsion-it's completely different to Rosemary's Baby plot wise but very much has his style :)

Oddly I had never seen this original Wolf Man movie until tonight. You can never go wrong with the Universal Monsters.

A class act all the way. Claude Rains, Bela, Maria Ospenskya... and sad old Lon Jr... on of the best!

My favorite classic horror is "The Uninvited" (1944) and "Dragonwyck" (1946). Most of the best true horror came from the 1940's.

To me The Uninvited is the best ghost story of all time.

Great atmoshere, creepy and scary without a lot of Gore.

I also like Dragonwyck as well.

I always loved the Universal horror films best, followed by the Hammer ones.

"Gammera The Invincible" (1966)

Plot:
After the atomic bombs carried by a shot-down Soviet bomber explode in the Arctic, a 200 foot tall, fire breathing, flying turtle monster (Damn, what were they smoking back then) awakens from it's hibernation and goes on a destructive rampage.

Phantom's Review: Japanese cheese at it's finest. Cool monster, bad dubbing, lots of destruction. And like the original "Godzilla' before it, this film has been "Americanized" with footage showing soldiers, scientists and talk show hosts dealing with the monster. These scenes are hysterical. A fun way to spend an afternoon.

Not horror but "The Face Behind THe Mask" (1941) classic film noir with Peter Lorre. Very exciting for a classic noir and characters that you genuinely care about-recommended to Peter Lorre and 40s film noir fans one of the my personal fave of the genre along with Nightmare Alley (1947)
